EA ANNOUNCES SOUNDTRACK FOR SKATE
SKATE Features Popular Songs from Hit Bands Including Nirvana, the White Stripes and Gang Starr as well as Exclusive Tracks Created by World Renowned DJs
CHERTSEY, UK. - June 13, 2007 - Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: ERTS) announced today the complete track listing in SKATE which is set to release Autumn 2007 on the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system. SKATE boasts 45 songs from some of the most influential and celebrated artists including David Bowie, Nirvana, N.W.A. and The Ramones. The game also features 18 exclusive tracks from mixing mastermind XXXChange, skateboarding's very own legend, Tommy Guerrero, as well as other world renowned DJs.
"The soundtrack for SKATE is a direct reflection of true outlaw skateboard culture," said Steve Schnur, Worldwide Executive of Music and Marketing at EA. "It's a throwback to the days of underground skateboard videos when skaters created their own soundtracks that raided every genre of music. In that spirit, we talked to hardcore skaters around the country to help pick many of the songs for SKATE. Real recognizes real, and this soundtrack is a straight-up tribute to a culture like no other."
SKATE is the closest thing to skateboarding without actually putting your feet on a board. With innovative Flickit controls that take advantage of the dual analog sticks and the ability to sculpt tricks that define your own style, SKATE delivers an authentic boarding mecca like no other videogame. Players will explore, find, and own the best spots in the fictitious city of San Vanelona while listening to a soundtrack that'll get them up and moving. As they cruise through this enormous city, players will capture footage to show off their own style with friends across the world.ARTIST SONG Agent Orange No Such Thing Airbourne Let's Ride Bad Brains I Against I Band of Horses The Funeral Beat Beat Beat Sinking Slow Black Flag Six Pack Booker T & The MG's Green Onions Challenger Input the Output Cheap Trick Surrender Children of Bodom Hate Crew Deathroll David Bowie Queen B**** Dead Prez Hip Hop Devo Gut Feeling/Slap Your Mammy Eddie Rap Life Push Your Wood Eric B & Rakim Juice (Know the Ledge) Escalera Go It Alone Filthy Thieving Ba****** ...Lords Of The Avenues Gang Starr Now You're Mine H.I.T Drama Mac Mall Perfect Poison Motorhead We Are Motorhead Nivarna Lounge Act N.W.A Express Yourself Renee Renee Stand Up Talk Easy Rick James Give It To Me Baby Rick Ross Hustlin' River City Tanlines Black Knight S.T.R.E.E.T.S Georgia St. Sicker Than Others Face Away Sister Nancy Bam Bam Slayer Raining Blood The Briefs Poor and Weird The Coup Ride the Fence The Dwarves Massacre The Exploding Hearts Your Shadow The Falcon Blackout The Mag Seven D*** Cemetery The Ramones Psycho Therapy The Returnables Teenage Imposters The Sex Pistols Pretty Vacant The Stars Misplaced Prophets And Kings The White Stripes Girl, You Have No Faith In Medicine Trouble Andrew Chase Money Valient Thorr Man Behind The Curtain ZZ Top Just Got Paid
